Direct Hit

Milwaukee pop punk band Direct Hit will be releasing their debut Fat Wreck full-length album Wasted Minds on June 24th! You can hear one of their new songs “Forced To Sleep” below and it sounds kick ass! The band will be touring with NOFX and Mean Jeans this month, including a stop at Irving Plaza on April 29th (also with Mephiskapheles).

Inspired by the savage and warped sensibilities of Burroughs’ Naked Lunch and Thompson’s Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, this 12-track concept album will take you on a sonic rollercoaster, reminiscent of a more concise and pointed version of Green Day’s American Idiot. Produced by All-American Rejects guitarist Mike Kennerty, the album follows a cast of drug-addled, medicated and unpredictable characters who check in and out of reality with reckless abandon. Singer/Guitarist/Lyricist Nick Woods says “The record is less about chemical abilities and handicaps and more about identity, consciousness and relativity.”
